|Eye PPE Safety Signs |
- Wear appropriate PPE such as tall rubber boots, pants, waterproof gloves and long-sleeved shirts.
- If concrete contacts your skin, immediately wash it off with clean water and replace any wet clothing or PPE.
- Wear eye protection with side shields, or safety goggles. Eyes can be seriously injured by splashing concrete.
- Ground all electric tools and use with care. Wet concrete can conduct electricity.
- Be aware of pinch points when raising or lowering concrete chutes.
- Protect your back. Place wet concrete via chute, wheelbarrow or pump, as close to the work area as possible. Concrete should be pushed, not lifted, into place.
- Use waterproof knee pads or a dry board when kneeling to place or finish concrete.
- Workers may not experience acute symptoms right away if wet concrete touches their skin. If a burning sensation continues or worsens after flushing the area with water, seek medical attention.
- If wet concrete splashes the eyes, flush continuously with clean water for at least 15 minutes and then go to the hospital.
